Saavedra's deal

From the Houston Chronicle’s School Zone blog:


After meeting in closed session for about an hour, the board also unanimously approved his amended employment contract — which, in a nutshell, guarantees Saavedra his $327,010 base salary through next March, even if the board finds a new superintendent before then.

That means the district could be paying Saavedra and a new superintendent at the same time, though Saavedra’s attorney, Vidal Martinez, predicts the overlap won’t be much since superintendent searches can take a while.
